By Linda Eaton
Based on the 1970 classic by Florence M. Montgomery
Take the "bones" of a classic volume, rewrite with updated and newly researched material, add 450 glorious color images, and you have the makings of a new standard in the field: Printed Textiles: British and American Cottons and Linens, 1700-1850.
Author Linda Eaton, the John L. & Marjorie P. McGraw Director of Collections and Senior Curator of Textiles at Winterthur, has produced the worthy sequel to Florence Montgomery?s 1970 publication, Printed Textiles. Focused primarily on fabrics used as furnishings?referred to as "furnitures"?rather than dress fabrics, the new volume addresses the textiles industry in both Britain and America, international trade, designers and design as well as the chemistry and technology of printing on cottons and linens.
